THANKS C90!

What the mighty 90 gave us

Motorcycle News (UK) - - Feature -

CHEAP, AF­FORD­ABLE, NO-FUSS TRANS­PORT

100mpg, easy to ride, and cheap as chips, it’s no won­der the C90 is the big­gest-sell­ing bike of all time with over 60 mil­lion units shifted.

A NEW IM­AGE

‘You meet the nicest peo­ple on a Honda’, coined for a 1963 US mar­ket­ing cam­paign, went a long way to chang­ing pub­lic per­cep­tion.

A BIKE FOR LIFE

Many bike mags have tried (and usu­ally failed) to kill a C90. The bikes are so ba­sic and bul­let­proof that they just keep go­ing for­ever.

THE HONDA FIREBLADE

With­out mas­sive sales of the C90 it’s un­likely that Honda would have thrived as a com­pany and we’d never have had the Blade.
